Difusión y Transferencia


Gender Gap in STEM
- Since 2014 member of the "colectivo de mujeres matemáticas" (https://www.mujeres-matematicas.cl) We promote the visibility of female mathematicians in Chile and Latin America, through talks to general public, expositions in museums and meeting. Among them:
* Organization of the II Meeting of Mathematical Women in Latin America,
* Responsible of the Exhibition Portraits of Mathematics that has been shown in the more important chilean museums,
* Organized panel to discuss the gender gap in mathematics along.

Research Dissemination
- 2018 Panelist in the 3º Complex Energy System Workshop, Renewable, Flexible and Resilient Energy Grids. Meeting to gather researcher and practitioners to discuss the future of the chilean electrical system. (http://cesworkshop.cl/18/es/programa)
- 2016 Panelist in the "Cafe del Futuro". "Effective Decisions: Complex Systems in Everyday Life " focussed in general public.
- 2015 Organization of Probability activities for undergraduates.

Transfer to Industry
- 2015 Private Transfer R & D for the Internal Tax Service of Chile. We developed a decomposition algorithm for computing income taxes with pass-through entities.
- 2014 Private Transfer R & D for Kapsch. Algorithm for road blocking using GPS information for a mining company.
- 2013 Private Consulting for Maron Perez consultant ltda. Study of development of R & D projects in a Mathematics Chilean Faculty.
